Toyota wants to help you scream at your unruly kids. The latest version of the company's Sienna minivan has a feature called 'Driver Easy Speak.' It uses a built-in microphone ...

Ghosts, possessions, exorcisms: Bizarre tsunami stories haunt Japan. True or not, I don't know. But so strange.

Haven't seen this before: Hawaii can't fit Janice "Lokelani" Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele's last name on her driver's license.
HONOLULU — A Hawaii woman s last name is a real mouthful, containing 36 characters and 19 syllables in all.

The future of mobile phone usage? Me this month: Almost 5 GB of data used but ZERO voice minutes. (Who uses their smartphone to talk?!)

I'm like that too. Very few minutes of talk if at all. A few txts, but lots of data! Maybe not 4gb worth, but definitely at least 2-3GB monthly on my phone.

Here in Canada where I am, most of the phone carriers are offering "unlimited" plans, where you get unlimited voice and txts, but maybe a measly 250mb which they "double" for 500mb.

Nice video explaining why the Chromebook #Pixel exists. Looks sleek and I'd love to have one...but not at that price when a MacBook Air/Pro or Windows 8 Ultrabook can run Google Apps and, well, anything else I need like Adobe Creative Suite or Final Cut. But as a proof of concept, I dig it.
 
So the Chromebook #Pixel  is pretty crazy. But why does it exist? I'll try to tackle that in this video.

Chromebook Pixel: Explained!

Props to +Jean-Louis Nguyen for the inspiration to make this video. Feel free to +1/Share if you enjoy!
